TERI BHABHI HAI PAGLE
Director: Vinod Tiwari
Starring: Krushna Abhishek, Rajniesh Duggall, Nazia Hussain, Mukul Dev, Deepshika and Aman Verma
Raj Nostrum, Haresh Kumar NOR and Vinod Tiwari’s TERI BHABHI HAI PAGLE is a comedy film which is far from the designed potential. The film revolves around a promising filmmaker DEV D (Rajniesh Duggall) who is anguished while making his debut film. Unintentionally, Dev’s girlfriend Ragini (Nazia Hussain), an actress, is roped into his maiden project which is produced by actor-producer Raj Chopra (Krushna Abhishek). From the very start, Raj lusts for Ragini and so he plans a shooting schedule in Goa. In Goa, the film unit lands in trouble with the local police for lack of permission. Raj calls his financier, the underworld don – Aru Bhai (Mukul Dev) to bail him out. Aru arrives in Goa with his entourage. And, on noticing Ragini he tries to catch her attention. How Dev and Ragini tackle the two men, who are showering unwarranted attention on Ragini, forms the crux of the story.
Technically the film is okay, Editing by Sanjay Sankla is average and music by Anamik Chauhan is below average and does not help the script in any way. Writing could have been better and the attempt to make it a satire fails completely.
Performances wise the cast tries to keep the film afloat with their over-the-top performances. Krushna looks jaded performing in his usual way, while Nazia Hussain and Rajneish Duggal are sincere in their performace, Mukul Dev tries to underplay his character of the don and he does it well. Deepshika as his wife Sulochana tries to give a variant to the stereotyped character she plays and she excels. Comedians Sunil Pal and Khayali Ram, as Raj’s handy-men Nawab and Sunder, are an extension of themselves. Vinit Sharma as the Inspector and Aman Verma as Guddu Rangela, are wasted in miniscule roles.
Directors attempt to make it a hilarious film but fails completely as it does not make you laugh apart from two –three scenes. The same old drama of many men falling for the same girl could have been made in at least a little more interesting way. But largely the film lacked in script and even the dialogues are not very funny.
